04:22 pm - I got books
So, Liz and I went to Borders on Saturday and I got $128.70 worth of books. I had gift cards worth $100 so it was very nice. I got:

Complete Idiots Guide to Paganism. This is for a book report for the ADF Dedicant program. It's not something I would normally buy for myself.

The Elements of Graphic Design. Thought I'd get some theory under my belt.

Technical Writing for Dummies. Cause it never hurts to have some learnin' on technical writing.

Complete Idiots Guide to Writing a Novel. Because I will one day write that novel.

Imagine IX: Fantasy Art Exhibition magazine. This showcased some amazing art, as well as some tutorials. The big one that caught my eye was where some guy did a painting in photoshop and painter. It looked really good.

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer DVD. This played really badly on my DVD player. The brightness kept going in and out, the picture looked bad and there was this constant static. Even on pause. It plays great in Liz's DVD player and on my computer. I liked it better than the first movie.
Current Mood: goodgood

I actualy really liked the Complete Idiots guide.

Let me know what you think about it when you're done.

You should return the DVD for another one. I think it's still in my machine. I haven't looked at it yet. But we should take it back Friday. They'll let you exchange it if it's defective.

I had gotten that Complete Idiot's Guide to Paganism a while back. It was ok, but very heavily Wicca-centric, odd considering it was written by one of the guys that was in Peachtree Grove, ADF. The descriptions of shamanism would have made Shawn scream, which is why I haven't let him read it.

Well, the author describes themselves as Wiccan, so I'm not surprised at the heavy Wiccan slant in the book.

I'm still reading the Shaman chapter. I thought it was nice that they did identify that the word "shaman" is from Siberia.

You're going to write a novel- OK, but how about a RunValdr book?

I'm still gathering data for the Rún Valdr book. :)

I actually have been thinking seriously about writing that.
